FEMA doles out $2.4M to help W.Va. clear debris

Mar. 01, 2013 @ 01:36 PM

CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) — More than $2.4 million in federal funds have been approved to help the West Virginia Division of Highways continue clearing debris from roads left by Superstorm Sandy.

The funds include nearly $1.4 million for Tucker County alone.

U.S. Sens. Jay Rockefeller and Joe Manchin and Congressman Nick Rahall announced the funding Friday from the Federal Emergency Management Agency.

The October storm dumped more than 2 feet of snow in parts of the state, left seven people dead and knocked out electricity to more than a quarter-million customers, some for two weeks.
